Pizza is a family affair for me. My Uncle Angelo arrived in America in the 1930s with a passion for pizza. He worked hard and eventually bought his own pizzeria in Brooklyn. It was there that Uncle Angelo invented a recipe for coal oven pizza. That recipe has been perfected over 60 years and passed down through the generations.

My brothers and cousins in New York know the recipe. Diners at Patsy's, Nick's and Angelo's have enjoyed their pizzas, pastas and salads for years. Here in Philadelphia and New Jersey, you can feast on my Uncle Angelo's secret recipe dishes at our three Pietro's locations: 1714 Walnut Street, 121 South Street in Philadelphia, and Radnor, Pa. I hope that you enjoy our classic style pizzas and pasta specialties "alla familia" for many years to come. Buon appetito

I’ve been going to Pietro’s for years because they’re consistent! The first time I went to Pietro’s was for lunch during work hours. Their service was efficient and the food was delicious, so I decided to come back for dinner. Again, the food was delicious, fresh and comforting... and their cocktails are solid. I’d say their prices are also fair given the location, in center city where cost of everything is inflated.

Good food, good staff, clean facilities, good value, relaxed and fun environment. A little noisy but kind of expect that from this type of place. Nice artisanal pizzas along with other fare make this a simple go to place.

Stopped in this past Saturday (mid-day) with my hubby. Shared a soup and a margarita pizza. Both were very good. $5 mimosa’s too which was a great deal. Restaurant was very chilly though. They also had outdoor covered seating.

I had a wonderful, last minute reservation with my boyfriend here. The outdoor seating is really nicely decorated, and each table has its own heater it wasn’t to my taste but it was nice getting a sample before I ordered anything. The pizza was perfectly fine, not amazing but quite good. Overall we had a nice time.

AMAZING FOOD! We ordered a bunch of appetizers (risotto balls, meatballs, and calamari) which were all so good. We also ordered the short rib pizza and it was the best pizza I've tasted in a very long time!!!

Delicious food but sad service. Server was sat three tables at once and we were the last. We waited 15 minutes to even ask for drinks. Server end up forgetting a couple things several times. Manager was pleasant and made conversation but didn’t seem to actually be helping the server that was clearly needing help. However, at the end the food spoke for itself and was absolutely delicious.

The food is very good. We had the roasted meatballs for an appetizer which were excellent. We decided on the wood fired pizza for our main course, which was delicious. At this time of COVID, there was socially distanced tables. The server all had both masks and face shields. We felt safe dining there.

Just a very standard dining experience.

Waiter was nice, food was mediocre (pizza had an extremely sweet sauce), and food was slightly expensive for it was.

We dined outside. The only ones there so it was nice and quiet with 2 heaters! And great service.

The calamari and Mediterranean salad were both very good. We really enjoyed the white bean and olive oil dip for the bread

The pizza itself, the main reason we came, was somewhat dry so a little disappointing.

But overall a very nice experience and will continue to recommend this restaurant.

We sat outdoors at Pietros for brunch and overall had a lovely experience. Given COVID restrictions, Pietros has build a three walled structure with spacing and plastic between tables to ensure safe dining. There are heaters inside so even though it was only about 40 degrees we were comfortable the whole time. All servers are masked. The food was absolutely delish; although they no longer have a brunch menu, just lunch. The grilled vegetables, shrimp, risotto and Parmesan chicken were all excellent. They still do $5 brunch drinks on Sunday, which we sampled all of and were all excellent. Our server was incredibly kind and attentive. I highly recommend Pietros.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the outside dining tent. Every table had a personal heater so it wasn’t too bad on a chilly Saturday night! The food was excellent, portions generous and service was polite and professional. Outdoor dining table and chairs were not as comfortable as inside, but it was worth it to stay safe and enjoy a delicious meal.
